    It's tying privilegues to uids/gids, and it does so in an overcomplicated
    way and just for an extremly tiny, specialized subset of available
    privilegues.

    In short it's a very specialized hack.

    I'm very sorry but I don't have the time to comment on every single patch
    posted somewhere. All the review and core kernel work I do on lkml is in my
    unpaid spare time. If you want me to review specific things in a deadline
    or want me to implement features in a way that fits the kernel grand plan
    (which doesn't equal to it actually beeing accepted by other kernel
    developers), you're free to contract me.
